Eric Buterbaugh Apollo Hyacinth

 

Seven Days of Eric Buterbaugh*

Eric Buterbaugh is a well-known floral designer based in Los Angeles. Last year, he launched a line of perfumes, Eric Buterbaugh FLORALS, inspired by the medium he knows best – flowers. The Noses work with Firmenich, creating many of my most-worn perfumes from designer to niche. I’m dedicating a week to reviewing this line because like Eric Buterbaugh, I too love florals.

I love rose fragrances, skincare and even as something to eat. I’m always looking for an excuse to sample and talk about rose perfumes.

This little shop is one of my favorites in the United States. It’s been open since the mid-1800’s. It’s been passed down through many hands, but it’s still thriving and making perfume. And for niche perfume… Continue reading | 8 Comments
